  • We visited the museum on a day when many school children were enjoying the experience. There are many exhibits that will hold a young persons attention not so much for us though. Overall worth a visit...  more »

  • Climb in the cockpit of a real jet fighter, see what quarters are like on the International Space Station, learn about engines, rockets, renewables, remarkable animals and more! A great place for families with everything available in English as well as Spanish (with the exception of the planetarium voiceover), if you love STEM you have to visit.
  • Perfect for the whole family, an entry ticket valid the whole day so you can come and go as you please, there really is something for everyone here and despite it being relatively small it kept us entertained most of the day. There is a planetarium with a show in English and we watched two 3D films in English, and had a ride on the robotic arm thing which can be set to anything between gentle and wild. Highly recommend this museum.
  • A lot of interactive exhibits and everything is included in the entrance fee. The robocoaster is extremely fun and the staff very friendly. Only negative impression were that a couple of exhibits were not working properly.
  • Great place for the smaller children - especially because you could touch and try everything. Price and experience is compareable..
  • Interesting exhibition mainly about physics in work, definitely worth the price. Only negative is the broken exhibition item's in a few place
